Subject: snooze fest.

Subject: What's all the Fuss?!
THIS SHOW ROCKS!!!!!!
glad we can all have our own opinions, and seriously folks...this is a fantastic performance.
Scarlet/Fire, Truckin>smokestack jam>Sugar Magnolia, china doll, lazy lightning....
would have loved to be there....
surprised no one has mentioned the attempt to play smokestack lightnin out of truckin, as bobby and brent both are really pushing for it there.
5 stars...searing versions of several songs...
Subject: Blown Speaker
Lots of other highlights and a pleasant amount of time devoted to jams within and around the songs, not usually the forte' for '81...S>F is beautiful, as always.
Of course, Glassberg's recording is like all those other great ones from the early '80s that make soundboards unnecessary - this thing sounds better than most audience recordings I'm hearing from other shows (see: Furthur) in the last five years or so.
Scarlet Begonias, China Doll and Brokedown. IMO best China Doll solo. However, 3/9 was tighter and more consistent.
Subject: My #1 tape
Hah sounds like Ramrod dropped his dinner plate on Mickey's big ass space xylophone thingy during Half-Step
Subject: MSG rocked
Subject: First of many
15 years old in NYC. First of many great NYC shows & first of many more underage drinks at that dive bar around the corner who's name I can never remember ??
Wish I could recall more of the show a bit better but China Doll & Brokedown were stellar and are still well remembered.
Could never thank my big bro enough for turning me on to the Dead & taking me to my first show.
Subject: Way, Way Up There
China Doll et al.
Great recording, too. Listening to it provokes
a remarkable altered state of consciousness.
Everything about this show and tape is evocative
of the LSD of the era - bright, spangly, smeary,
sharp-edged, dazzling, hyperkinetic, high-octane, exhausting
Subject: Never thought 26 years ago I'd be able to download this show I went to
Subject: What was that ?
Sounds Good 1/2 through.
Subject: Magical Night
Subject: First show
Subject: Not the best of the week
First set it unremarkable. Deal is tepid. Jerry's voice is strained in places. He sounds tired and uninspired in Scarlet, playing chords instead of solo jamming. The transition jam to Fire just doesn't go anywhere. Fire itself has a few moments, but seems to go on forever without acheiving anything. There are some moments in elsewhere in the second set.
Subject: Great show
Subject: i love GD
Subject: Not to be a buzz kill - I just dont see the majesty of this
You may not agree with the appraisal but just did not feel it here.
Subject: Passionate Fire On the Mountain
Insane melodic runs. Very passionate emotional Fire.
One of the top 5.This show is an all timer for sure.
Subject: a few sound issues
Subject: Killer last set
Subject: Hot Show
